The 902 Summerland Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron’s Unit Effective Speaking competition was held last Wednesday.
Each cadet in the squadron, as part of their leadership training, was instructed to prepare a five to six minute speech on a topic of interest.
After this exercise, cadets then gave a two to three minute impromptu speech about “your favorite game or pastime.”
Flight Sergeant Simon Bambey was awarded first place for his prepared speech on Social Media — Its Impact on Air Cadets and his impromptu speech about his favorite pastime, flying.
Warrant Officer Patricia Henniger came in second place. Her prepared speech topic was My Greatest Air Cadet Achievement and for the impromptu speech, she chose the topic Dominoes.
Bambey and Henniger will represent Summerland at the Okanagan Wing Effective Speaking competition to be held in April in Penticton.
The winner of this competition will have the opportunity to go on to the Pacific Region and National level competitions.
